Comments from Mindfulness/Yoga Part of 2022 Retreat
This is a retreat for all helping professionals to experience connection and co-regulation with one another through yoga, awareness, self-inquiry, and much needed self-care for self-repair. You will also learn about non-duality and experience the exquisite “one-ness” of it all.
All levels of experience with yoga and meditation are welcome! Modifications and choices will be present in various styles of trauma-informed yoga geared towards increasing connection to the wisdom of the body (interoception) and the quieting of the mind. Learn yoga and breath practices to return to your window of tolerance, recharge, and connect on a deeper level with self, life, and others. Practice savoring the art of stillness, a requisite for going inwards to find the gold within.
Each day begins with a morning yoga & meditation to set the tone of the day. Classes are led by your hosts and yoga teachers Tricia & Mark. Each day is punctuated with a sunset sound journey to relax into the evening. In between, there will be opportunities for group and individual hikes, ample time in nature, and exploring the grounds and trails around Ghost Ranch’s spectacular surrounding mesas and national forests. Enjoy the outdoors, connecting with nature, reflecting and journaling.
Even before you leave, you’ll feel refreshed, renewed, and re-energized! Take home the knowledge and novel skill sets to create enhanced connection with your Self, your purpose, and your clients. By the end, you will have the experience to integrate these powerful practices in your daily life to create more balance and capacity for your purpose and passions.
